The boys jumped well.   The High Jump team took fourth in a field of 15 teams.

"These three medal winning performances were a wonderful surprise," Heckman said. "A freshman and sophomore combining for a medal, a relay with a new face and two letter winners combining for a school record this early in the season.  An early Christmas present for sure."

Heckman said the Spartans also competed in the boys Distance Medley Relay, boys and girls 4X200 Meter Relay and the boys and girls Sprint Medley Relay.
